This Mom Reviews Ulta Baked Eyeshadows

20160112_193523I was sifting through the posts I have done so far and I realized I had not reviewed or discussed any beauty tips/products. What better place to start then with┬ámy favorite eye shadow! Ulta’s Baked Eye Shadows give great pigmentation and color combinations. You can use them dry or wet, which is my personal preference. By controlling the amounts you can actually create shades, adding depth and new color shades.

So w20160112_181002-2hat I have done is use Ulta Baked Eye Shadow in the color Spellbound to show you the difference between using the eye shadow wet and dry. The sample on the left is the eyeshadow with water and a wet brush whereas the sample on the right is the same eye shadow applied with a dry brush. As you can see they are both beautiful pigmentation but two totally different looks. One bold and vibrant and the other soft and demure.

Below are samples of all the colors I currently own with a wet brush. As I said above, using the baked shadow wet is my favorite! Left to right the colors are Taken, Natural Beauty, Covet, and Sweet Dreams.

This Mom Gets Asked, Why A Blog?

Standard

It is 2016, I’m 35 years old, and I’m at a point in my life that I’m happy and more confident in my self than I ever have been. Between my 2 sons and my husband I rarely get any girl time to talk about what girls talk about. I love being a wife and a mom but sometimes I want to be more than that. To talk girly and be understood, to discuss creatively. I want this blog to do just that. Throughout this year I am challenging myself to get out there and engage myself with topics that will hopefully engage others. To enrich myself by enriching others. The truth is, I like to think I’m always right when sometimes I am wrong, I cry at movies (even animated ones), I love makeup and nail polish, I love the colors pink and purple, I believe in being soft but kicking a little butt when necessary, I believe in happy endings, love music not just for the beat but how I can relate to the lyrics, I am addicted to Pinterest, and I’m not perfect. I am a girl, a woman, and I want time to be just that. I proudly claim to be a girl and this is my girl time!
